Partitioning in Windows 7

Needed to remove junk from a USB thumb drive. Google search yielded a nice find at

1) Type “DISKPART” from the Command Prompt (accessible by clicking on Start and then typing “cmd” into the open field); you will then see the following prompt: DISKPART>

2) Type “LIST DISK” to see what number your USB drive is listed as.

3) Type “SELECT DISK 2” (if your USB is disk 2; replace # with your disk #); Diskpart will confirm that “Disk 2 is now the select disk.”

CTRL-ALT-DEL: Debian on Desktop

I run debian+gnome on a VMware desktop. One of the annoying things is when I press CTRL-ALT-DEL to lock Windows (the hosting OS), the guest OS picks it up and I come back to a powered down VM.

Google results will tell you that disabling it in /etc/inittab or gconf-edit will do the trick. That’s just not the case.

You need to go to system > preferences > keyboard shortcuts and disable it there.

This completely disables it.
